Gone Too Soon
Dear (Loved One’s Name),
We weren’t prepared for you to go
You were too full of life to be
Taken away from us so soon
It’s still hard to believe
How much we’ll miss your smile
And your laughter in our ears
Your absence leaves a hole in us
We’re filling with our tears
You taught us how to be our best
To in the moment live
To never hold a grudge for long
And loyal friendship give
Your presence was a light and joy
We never realized would someday end
Just like the brilliant falling star
That curved ‘round heaven’s bend
And though we cannot understand
The reasons God took you now
We’ll do our best to accept this loss
To carry on somehow…
(Loved One’s Name), we can’t bear to say goodbye
But you wouldn’t want us mourning in distress
So we’ll smile through these falling tears
Counting our time with you quite blessed
We will remember you forever
For you, our hearts will always have room
We loved you more than you will ever know
You left us way too soon!
ALT. Verse: You left us far too soon!
